Donkey circus

One of the advantages of siting my vegetable garden in the centre of the donkeys’ field is that it creates a natural ‘circus’ and encourages them to run around the field for exercise.  The vet came last Saturday to do the anti-parasite treatment for them.  Rubi certainly seemed to be affected by worms and she had seemed very slow in her movements.  She refused to go for a walk recently too.  After the treatment she seems to have perked up.  The race around the field is great fun, but as seen in the film, I nearly got knocked over!

The braying at the beginning of the video was added on later. The only braying comes from Morris usually, and that’s not much more than a glorified squeak. Interesting to see Matilde fussing over Rubi’s foal Morris at the beginning of this sequence, while her own foal Aitana trots along behind.


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.
